Marisa and Tim are getting married.
Saturday August 20, 2022 in Grand Ledge, Michigan
WHEN AND WHERE
505 Pleasant St, Grand Ledge, MI 48837
Saturday, August 20th
- Vows of love!
(Marisa and Tim will make these to one another.)
- Reflection on love!
(We’ll send the mic around the tables, so you don’t have to get up).
(We’re getting chicken tinga tacos and salads from City Built Brewing, plus making our own vegan filling (thank you, Evan Brandt!), as well as a tortilla chips and salsa bar (a la Marisa). Mark Svekric has promised to make his famous vegetarian bean dip. Let us know if you have dietary restrictions when you RSVP and we’ll do our best to make our meal inclusive for you. Feel free to bring anything else you enjoy in or with tacos to share such as your own favorite chips or radishes from your garden. )
(Still figuring this out)
(Also still figuring this out. For alcohol, we plan to have beer, seltzer, and sangria, and hopefully a signature cocktail or two. We will also have ice tea, sodas, and juice. Bring a bottle or six-pack to share, if there’s something in particular you’d like to drink.)
- Lawn games!
(We have croquet and Kan Jam. We also have table top games, if that is more your speed. Please bring any of your favorites, as long as they don’t pose any danger to the children attending—looking at you, jarts. )
(No band or DJ, sorry. The plan is to make a play list and dance in the driveway. Woo!)
Out of Town Visitors
So, if you are coming from out of town and staying for at least one night, please let us know if you’d like help you set up local accommodations.
The closest city is Lansing (20 min away to the east) and while it does have an airport, it’s just a little regional one. We generally fly through Detroit, which is 1 hr and 20 min away. If you plan to stay nearby the wedding, the closest hotels are all around the intersection of N Canal Rd and W Saginaw Highway in Lansing (clustered around Horrock’s Farmers Market), which is about a 10 minute drive. There is a Comfort Inn, a Ramada, a Hampton Inn, a Red Roof Inn, a Travelodge, a Fairfield Inn, and Quality Suites. Marisa’s folks will be at the Comfort Inn 🙂 We can coordinate carpooling, if that’s helpful.
If you’d like something a little different, there are two AirBnB locations within walking distance of our house. McMillan House is an apartment with three rooms, each with Queen beds and would be a great place for a few couples to stay The Scott House is a one bedroom apartment with two twin beds plus a living room with two more twin beds that might be good for friends or a family.
Please do not feel obligated to give us anything but the pleasure of your company. That said, if you are so moved, you can click the button below to find our registry at The Knot. There are a few things we would be grateful to receive, as well as a “pet fund” to help us cover the bills so we can continue to take care of our aging animals, including our very cute 11-year-old pandemic-era rescue dogs, Beanie and JoJo (see above).
You need not limit yourself to the registry gifts, though, if there is anything else you feel inspired to bring to us or the party.
